Dual Career Network

The TU Delft assists partners of international employees in finding employment in the Netherlands with the Partner Career Advice. A similar service is offered by the Leiden- and Erasmus University. In a strategic alliance, the three universities are intensifying their existing collaboration and service and aim to bridge the gap for partners to the Dutch labour market. An important part of the Partner Career Advice is the Dual Career Network (DCN). 

What is the Dual Career Network?

The Dual Career Network is initiated to interest companies and organisations in the region by networking, offering lectures, creating work experience, offering internships to assist partners and spouses of international academic staff in finding a job, enhance their professional network or for instance start their own business.
Please note that the Coming to Delft Service & Partner Career Advice and Dual Career Network focus on providing assistance and advice. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee to find employment. We will of course do our best to assist you as good as possible. 


We recommend partners to first take part in the partner career workshops and afterwards join the DCN. If you are interested in using the advantages of the Dual Career Network as an extension of the Partner Career Advice then contact us via HRservices@tudelft.nl

It's pleasant to participate in the Dual Career Programme of TU Delft after I moved to the Netherlands with my husband. I really appreciate their services, which helped me to quickly build up a local career network. Special thanks go to Peter de Bruijn as he guided me to utilise LinkedIn for seeking tailored positions in this area. Now I became a teacher in the Delft Chinese School. Although it is a part time job, I regard it as a nice kick-off for my career in this beautiful place.
